Li-E Chen dropped by and we talked about lobbying and climate issues.

My feeling is that politicians respond to political will. We citizens create it.


Frances Rifkin came over and the conversation turned to how we can develop political

engagement at grass roots level. We discussed the issue that often the people who's

issues are most urgent find it most difficult to have political inflence.

We need to find ways to develop and amplify the voices of the oppressed.
